Marvel Comics has released a mysterious teaser for a one-shot titled Incoming, hinting at a big cosmic event this December that'll redefine the Marvel Universe.
The visual shows an unknown figure wielding a sword He-Man style, with ominous-looking eyes in the background and the tag, "One will unite them!" It's a very cryptic tease that doesn't give much away, but with so much information being disseminated at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, it's no surprise Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort expressed excitement at what's to come.
"This really sets the course of what you'll see in the Marvel Universe in the years to come," Cebulski said in a statement. We could be looking at an Asgardian or someone wielding the Gorr the God Butcher's Necrosword, but until more info is released, fans will just have to keep guessing.
Marvel's website does have an insightful nugget, though, stating this one-shot will "shape the future of Marvel Comics into 2020 and beyond. From a single moment in the pages of the Dark Phoenix Saga to the events of Marvel Comics of today." It remains to be seen exactly who this character could be, but it's very clear he'll be uniting the Marvel Universe against a very dire threat.
An exact release date is still to be announced for this book, although a preview will be found in an exclusive edition of the 96-page Marvel Comics #1000.
